ACTS 2:24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. But God…what a way to start the new year. But God…really! That is ALL we need. I want that to be the story of 2010 in my life. Dan was trying to….blah, blah, blah….BUT GOD! Those two words are LIFE CHANGING! Not only are they life changing, ‘but’ the following after the BUT GOD is supernatural. I want to expect that this year. God raised a dead man and brought him to life. In the day to day, I want that to be said of me and I want this to be the pattern of each new day! As my feet hit the floor, I want to willfully die to self and apply the “but God” clause and have Him bring life to my day. When I give my life and this year and my day to God, He is able to then do through it what He desires. I am but a vessel. I am the clay, He is the potter. I am the conduit to carry forth His message. When life seems hopeless and when life seems to have its death grip on me, hold on…there is a BUT GOD waiting and promised for you! As it was with Christ, so will it be for you. It will be impossible for death to keep its hold on you! He will free you and release you! What an incredible truth! What ultimate HOPE! 2009….BUT GOD – 2010! We have a bright future!

About the Author: Dan O'Deens
I am a visionary architect who is passionate about seeing dreams realized and implemented so that together we can better our world physically and spiritually. I get excited about leadership development and seeing the church multiplied as people embrace their creative side and breathe life and hope into their world. There is nothing that motivates me more than serving the young, the lost, the poor and the elderly. I have been serving the Lord full-time for over 35 years. I consider myself a ‘life coach.’ For many years I was on the playing pitch. My role today is to train and invest in the next wave of ‘players’ who are serious about winning. My team runs to ‘win’…to win the prize of knowing that we embraced the high calling of God. To serve him with all that we have and give him all the glory. I have been privileged to serve God as a youth pastor, school administrator, church planter, lead pastor, mission director, business owner, crisis and catastrophe director and college professor. That God chooses to use me to direct our amazing team blows me away. I love my job!
